Who Was Jay Briscoe AKA Jamin Pugh?
Jamin “Jay” Pugh was an American professional wrestler, best known by his stage name Jay Briscoe. He signed a contract with Ring of Honor, where he and Mark Briscoe were the thirteenth reigning ROH World Tag Team Champions. He was also a six-man ROH World Tag Team Champion and a two-time ROH World Champion.
Career and achievements in wrestling
The Briscoe brothers, Jay and Mark, are members of the Ring of Honor Hall of Fame and have won the World Tag Team Championship 13 times. They held the ROH World Tag Team Championships after winning them at ROH Final Battle 2022 by defeating FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler). He has also wrestled for organizations including Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG).
Combat Zone Wrestling (2001–2003, 2010–2012)
On January 20, 2001, at Delaware Invasion, Jay and Mark Briscoe made their professional wrestling debuts for Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), teaming with Trent Acid in a three-on-one handicap match. The two went through the first round in a three-way match with Nick Mondo, where the rules stipulated that whoever fell would be eliminated at the inaugural Best of the Best event, a show slightly different from CZW in that it was a tournament highlighting junior athletic wrestling in heavyweight, not violent hardcore matches.
Beginning with Cage of Death 3 on December 15th and continuing through the end of 2002, CZW’s territory (i.e. the region where they held most of their events) moved from Sewell, New Jersey to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were known as The Midnight Outlaws and battled Nick Gage and Nate Hatred at this event while donning masks. This was probably done to get around the fact that Jay was only 17 and Mark was only 16, which meant that they could not legally work a wrestling exhibition in the state of Pennsylvania because they were under the legal working age since 18 years.
The Briscoes returned to CZW on December 11, 2010, at Cage of Death XII, challenging the newly crowned CZW World Tag Team Champions Philly’s Most Wanted of Blk Jeez and Joker to a title match in January. Philly’s Most Wanted successfully defended the CZW World Tag Team Championships against the Briscoe Brothers on January 7, 2011 at “From Small Beginnings Come Great Things.” The Briscoes then issued a no disqualification rematch challenge to Philly’s Most Wanted. The Briscoe Brothers defeated Philly’s Most Wanted on February 12, 2011 at Twelve: The Twelfth Anniversary Event to win the CZW World Tag Team Champions title. On May 14, 2011, Philly’s Most Wanted won the championship.
All Pro Wrestling Jersey (2001–2002, 2005)
On March 24, 2001, at March Madness Night 2, Jay Briscoe made his Jersey All Pro Wrestling (JAPW) debut, losing to Insane Dragon and Dixie teaming with his brother Mark Briscoe. Given that both brothers were minors at the time of this and two later appearances at the former ECW stadium, it is unknown how, if at all, the ownership and management of JAPW passed through Pennsylvania’s child labor statute . They made three additional appearances in JAPW in 2001, and on June 15 at Here to Stay, they made an unsuccessful attempt to win the JAPW Tag Team Championship from Dragon and Dixie.
In 2002, Jay Briscoe rejoined JAPW. At Unfinished Business on July 13, 2002, Jay Briscoe and Insane Dragon defeated the members of Da Hit Squad in unison to win the JAPW Tag Team Championship. At the next event, Royal Consequences 2, on August 10, 2002, Jey and Insane Dragon defended the belts against Da Hit Squad and the duo of Mark Briscoe and Deranged in a tables, ladders and chairs match, which Da Hit Squad won. The six men then faced off in a rematch of sorts. Da Hit Squad defeated the Briscoes in a normal match on September 20 at Family Crisis 2, two shows later, to successfully defend their title.
Ring of Honor (2002–2022)
The Briscoe brothers have fought the most for Ring of Honor. Era of Honor Begins was the first ROH event where Jay lost to Amazing Red in the ring. Since the majority of ROH’s early shows were held in Philadelphia, Mark sent him to the ring, but was unable to compete due to Pennsylvania’s child labor laws.
In the next four ROH events, Jay competed in professional wrestling matches against Spanky, Tony Mamaluke, Doug Williams and James Maritato, losing to all but Mamaluke. When Mark was allowed to compete at Honor Invades Boston, he won the penultimate bout of the night by defeating his brother. The brothers later entered into a brief rivalry during which Jey defeated ROH Champion Xavier at Glory By Honor without winning the championship. He was given an opportunity to win the title at All-Star Extravaganza, but did not.
The brothers’ plot in Scramble Madness, back in Boston, involved selecting their own teammates for a tag team competition. Mark chose Christopher Daniels as his partner because he appeared to have joined The Prophecy, while Jay chose former opponent Amazing Red. Daniels defeated Red by pinning him. At the First Anniversary Show, Jay defeated Mark in a fight to end the conflict between the brothers, and the two embraced as a gesture of their reconciliation afterwards. Although Mark never openly left the Prophecy, he stopped working with them when he formed a team with his brother.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling (2016–2019)
The Briscoes made their NJPW debut on January 4, 2016 at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in the Tokyo Dome, thanks to ROH’s partnership with New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). They teamed with Toru Yano to defeat the Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga and Yujiro Takahashi) to win the first EVER 6-Man Tag Team Championship. The Briscoes joined the Chaos stable as a result of their relationship with Jano.
The trio defeated another Bullet Club trio of Fale, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson the following day in their first successful title defense. The Briscoes and Yano were defeated by Fale, Tonga and Takahashi in their second NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship defense on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka. Three days later, at The New Beginning in Niigata, The Briscoes and Yano successfully defended their title. The Briscoes and Yano were defeated by The Elite on February 20 at Honor Rising: Japan 2016. (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson). On June 19 at Dominion 6.19 in Osaka-jo Hall, the Briscoes made a triumphant return to NJPW, defeating the Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa) to win the IWGP Tag Team Championship.
On August 14, they defeated the Bullet Club duo of Hangman Page and Yujiro Takahashi to make their first successful title defense. The Briscoe Brothers successfully defended their title against the defending IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks on September 22 at Destruction in Hiroshima. The Young Bucks were dethroned by the defending IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, The Briscoe Brothers, in their second successful title defense. They lost the title back to Tonga and Loa at King of Pro-Wrestling on October 10.
In addition to their many other accomplishments, the Briscoes won the 2022 NWA Crockett Cup and held the IWGP World Tag Team Championship. They competed in matches for various promotions, capturing many titles. They briefly competed in IMPACT Wrestling in 2022 and took home the belts there.
